Volunteer

Share your time, skills and enthusiasm!

Volunteers are very much a part of Easter Seals Camp Horizon and without them the camp could not exist! Volunteers bring energy, new ideas, enthusiasm and support to Camp.

Volunteer to assist with program leadership, fundraising, facilities upkeep and other aspects of camp operations. Whether you have a little time or a lot, we do our best to find the right volunteer opportunities for individuals, corporate work parties, groups or clubs. Orientation, training and support are available.

All volunteers are required to have a screening interview, police record check, intervention record check (formerly child welfare check) as well as a brief training period for some programs.

Work Parties

Bring your co-workers, church group, club or other organization to Camp for a day or weekend to assist in the many essential projects that are required to maintain and improve our facilities.

An example of an ongoing work party is the Kinsmen Club of Calgary. Every spring the Kinsmen come to the camp for a weekend to help plant flowers, paint, or assist in other necessary projects.

You supply the manpower and if possible, the supplies and we supply you with the support and the experience of a lifetime.

For more information, please contact our Director of Operations by D%2Cl%60hm or call 403-949-3818, Ext. 22.

Practicum Opportunities

To date we have had practicum placements from colleges and universities across Canada including: University of Guelph, Mount Royal College, University of Alberta, University of Victoria and more. The students have specialized in a variety of fields of study, including eco-tourism, disability studies, recreation and leadership, community rehabilitation, social work and other areas.

Check with your school co-op department and your practicum supervisors to find out how Easter Seals Camp Horizon can further your post-secondary studies.

Did You Know Part 1

In 1951 Canadian Mothers began marches such as one led by Canada’s first female Cabinet Minister, Ellen Fairclough, MP for Hamilton West. As a result of their efforts, the research of Dr. Jonas Salk was well funded, creating the historic made-in-Canada cure for polio. Today, Easter Seals Alberta funds vital programs and services for adults with disabilities and special needs.
